Dr Benjamin, how can you state that Topvein Herbal Supplement is a scam have you any proof that TOPVEIN does not work? Also, how can doctors like you with experience in HIV/AIDS care begin to take a more proactive stand to join forces with companies such as Topvein to help assure these claims are actually true, if in fact Topvein does actually work sir?

Response from Dr. Young


In an era of scientifically proven, life saving medications for HIV prevention and treatment, the standard for all therapies, and especially, the so-called "alternative medicine" field is to prove safety and effectiveness.

A quick search of the National Library of Medicine ( PubMed) for the term "Topvein" yields zero hits. Zero. Zilch.

The company's website fails to list any of the ingredients of the product so it's impossible to verify any additional facts. To use Mandela's photo and quotes as supporting the product is misleading and offensive.

Until we learn otherwise, or the company publicly presents the results of well designed clinical studies, Topvein can only be viewed as a scam. Topvein is immoral profiteering in a world where real medical care can save countless lives.
